Eagle Manufacturing Co. has been named West Virginia’s top manufacturing brand and among the top 50 brands in the nation by HBSDealer, the industry publication that focuses on hardware and building suppliers, and covers retailers, distributors and manufacturers who serve hardware store, lumberyard and farm and ranch markets.

The company manufactures more than 1,000 products, including safety cans, safety cabinets, poly drums and spill containment and material handling products. 

Charleston, W.Va. – BrickStreet Insurance, in partnership with the West Virginia Manufacturers Association (WVMA), presented the inaugural BrickStreet and WVMA Safety Award during the WVMA Annual Dinner at the Clay Center Thursday evening. 

The 2016 BrickStreet and WVMA Safety Award was presented to Sistersville Tank Works, a manufacturer of custom pressure vessels, storage tanks and other specialty products, for safety excellence.

“We are incredibly proud to present this award in partnership with WVMA,” said BrickStreet CEO Greg Burton. “Several years ago, we created an association program to support and reward WVMA member companies for their efforts in driving safety-related performance. We see this safety award as an extension of that, and it is an honor to recognize Sistersville Tank Works for the company’s dedication to creating a safer workplace.” 

All four major party candidates for governor of West Virginia appeared on the same stage Thursday to talk about economic development, the state budget and their visions for the state. Former U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin, businessman Jim Justice, state Senate Minority Leader Jeff Kessler and state Senate President Bill Cole all spoke, separately, at the West Virginia Manufacturer’s Association convention at the Charleston Civic Center.

West Virginia has a large supply of natural gas, but something needs to change if the state hopes to benefit from the construction of new gas-fired power plants and petroleum-based manufacturing, according to Blue Jenkins, the executive vice president of EQT Corp.’s commercial operations.

Jenkins was the keynote speaker at the West Virginia Manufacturers Association’s Marcellus and Manufacturing Conference at the Charleston Civic Center Wednesday.
